What people are saying about Paris

It was great to go with Frederique on this biketour. We (2 adults, 3 boys 14, 16 en 17 y. old) learned a lot. Frederique speaks Dutch very well (and english, german and more!) and made connections with the Dutch history as well. The boys recognized things from history at school. In the same time, we got to see soms nice spots of Paris as well. It was very nice! Kristin and Jochem and the boys

I would completely recommend this bike tour if your in Paris for any length of time! Kim was so knowledgeable about this beautiful city and was so enthusiastic about showing us the different sites! Highly recommend!

I can only recommend the tour. The tour guide did a great job. We visited the main attraction. Also recommended for people who already know Paris.
